Treating dogs with severe separation anxiety

Personal protection puppy training
This is a question I was asked by one of my clients recently so I thought I do a little research and see if I could find out the answer. One of the reasons your dog might be licking the air is that he has something wrong with his mouth. Quite often the problem seems to come and go meaning it may last for a couple of days or couple of weeks and then disappears again. I hope this article helped answer the question and maybe even has given you some ideas on why your dog seems to be licking the air. Hi I have just been following the comments on the dog licking the air topic and my dog also does this. Get your dog to the vet as soon as possible; the less time she has to repeat this behavior, the better the outlook might be for treatment. He could have something caught between his teeth something wrong with his gums and even something stuck to the roof of his mouth like a stick for example.


Dogs, just like human beings can sometimes have psychological issues that cause compulsive obsessive behavior.
This blog was started for his dog training clients and has grown to a blog for dog owners and trainers all over the world. There are various reasons your dog may be licking the air, but the fact that she does it for long periods of time is suggestive of a possible compulsive disorder. Honestly assess the amount of exercise, mental stimulation and interaction your dog gets on a daily basis, as well as any training or punishment that is used in your home. Your veterinarian will perform a full physical exam to look for medical causes of the licking. If your dog will allow it take a look in his mouth and see if you can find anything that could be causing him to lick.
The list can include everything from dirt to rocks to sticks and of course this can cause some indigestion and nausea.


However, because there may be other causes for this behavior, including health concerns such as dental pain, nausea, gastrointestinal discomfort, seizures and canine cognitive dysfunction, you should first visit your veterinarian for a proper diagnosis. Some dogs only perform repetitive behaviors around humans, because those behaviors have become conditioned responses.
It will also help if you can describe the responses of people in your house to the behavior.
